mercy heals Lent 2-15-16

Consider the torment of knowing you have sinned and not been forgiven. It is a prison of the mind if you have a conscience.

If you’re walking with the Lord, then you have a conscience; that is - “an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior.”  

David, “the man after God’s heart”  was the writer of Psalm 41. His sins were searing his “soul” – his inner thoughts, the conversation going on in his head.

His prayer was for relief, for deliverance. Only the mercy of God could be the remedy.

We have to know and feel the emotions of being forgiven. It doesn’t matter the size or gravity of our sin, our souls are designed to crave union with God that meets his standard of holiness.

Without it, we are never going to be truly happy.

The good news is of course, just humbly repent and ask, and Jesus lavishly gives all the grace, mercy and forgiveness we need to be completely set free.

Receive it today!


Father today, like David of old, I cry out and ask for your mercy. Lord I have sinned and done what is evil in your sight. By your grace I believe you will heal and restore my soul. Thank you for your great love, and thank you for making me whole. In Jesus precious name, amen.
